TiVo Corp (NASDAQ:TIVO) has become more creative and is now creating DVR boxes for all types of video content…not just cable TV, but streaming as well, including YouTube Red. And, of course, a lot of people have now “cut the cord.” So TiVo is adjusting to that situation; I think that’s going to be very advantageous.
TIVO also has a very low price/earnings ratio — by some calculations it’s around 8:1 — so it really is a bargain price at the moment. Here is my bullish recommendation, a naked put write:
Sell to open the TIVO Dec. 15th $16 put at about $0.35.
For those who may not be familiar with this strategy, a naked put write is a bullish position in which you expect the price of the underlying stock to increase. You’ll want to watch out for a move below $16, as if you are holding the option at expiration and the stock is trading below the $16 strike price, the puts will be exercised and you will be required to purchase the underlying shares.
But, as long as TIVO remains above $16 through expiration on Dec. 15, we’ll walk away with full profits.
